North Korea state media reported on a “successful” test at a missile launch site.
“A very important test took place at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground on the afternoon of December 7, 2019,” a spokesperson for the Academy of the National Defense Science said.
The spokesperson said the test was “of great significance to the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
No mention of Kim Jong Un observing, but the presentation of the significance of the "strategic position" of the test reminds one of the March 18, 2017, engine test.
